Ah, statistics! How I love them!
The following includes all spoken or narrated lines of all acts 2-4 without any consideration to branching, i.e. if a line appears two times in the script it will be counted two times here.

By filesize (according to SC):
#1: Shizune (658KB)
#2: Rin (640KB)
#3: Lilly (608KB)
#4: Hanako (529KB)
#5: Emi (514KB)

Files contain lots of direction and comments - only around 46% of all lines contain spoken or written text that the reader actually gets to see - so let's look at the line count. (Broghurt's count is very similar to mine; I will use my own count anyway.)
By linecount:
#1: Emi (5.769 lines)
#2: Rin (5.597 lines)
#3: Shizune (4.867 lines)
#4: Lilly (4.802 lines)
#5: Hanako (4.074 lines)

Finally, the linecount doesn't tell us anything about the amount of text, so let's do a wordcount:
By wordcount:
#1: Shizune (90.787 words)
#2: Rin (85.014 words)
#3: Lilly (80.431 words)
#4: Hanako (73.545 words)
#5: Emi (65.033 words)

It's interesting that Emi's path has the most lines but the fewest words:
By words/line
#1: Shizune (18,7)
#2: Hanako (18,1)
#3: Lilly (16,7)
#4: Rin (15,2)
#5: Emi (11,3)

Note that in Shizune's path, there are a lot of lines consisting of only "...", so this makes her lead all the more impressive.
Can't be bothered to do a charactercount right now 8)

20.

Assuming we're not counting background characters, and characters without sprites.

Awww let's make it 21. It feels wrong to count both new student council members and not Iwanako.


:P

I'm not sure, but I think he meant characters as in letters. I could be wrong though :P

It's Rin's route. I think it's even been confirmed by the devs. :3

Rin has 2 huge walls of text. But i'm not sure if you're really intended to read them, to add comical value.

On one hand, you can get a look into the mind of Rin.

On the other, the wall of text has the same amount of comical value a Kenji scene does.

Read both because, why not.

I read it too. Don't forget that she can think about 4 things at once, and that was only 1 of them.

From where are you getting this data?
From the VN's script files.
And before you ask: No, I'm not at liberty to distribute those. I have them only for the translation.

OK then. I won't ask. Local data protection is physically impossible*, just like DRM. If, someday, I really want them, I'll get them.

*Technical stuff:
There are really 2 problems with local content encryption. (We're talking theoretically, on an information-theory basis, and I admit nothing :P) The first is display: if it is displayed, it can be recorded. This can range from holding a video camera up to your TV, to making a hardware device that pretends to be a TV (just needs an HDMI input, really) and simply writes to disk anything coming in, to automating a KS playthrough and using OCR to grab the text. The second is encryption and obfuscation: in order to display the content, it must be decrypted (or unpacked, de-obfuscated, etc). Therefore, the key must be offline and theoretically accessible by the user. Once key security is compromised, all you have left is obscurity, and as the IT saying goes, that's no security at all. RenPy being open source simply makes unpacking that much easier.

Says the RenPy manual: "a moderately skilled programmer could easily crack [rpyc] obfuscation."
